ABSTRACT
The article focuses on issues related to tobacco budworms. Second generation budworms are rarely an economic problem. In some years, however, when budworms eliminate most squares and terminals in scattered cotton fields, maturity delays and yield losses can occur. For managing budworms in the June to early July time frame, utilization of beneficial insects, following higher thresholds, and the sparing use of tracer, a fungus derived compound of the naturalite insecticide and steward, a nerve transmission blocker should help sustain North Carolina's cotton producers ability to inexpensively and effectively manage early budworms and bollworms on conventional cotton over an extended period of time.
